Toyota teases modified sports car concept

Toyota is set to unveil the latest concept version of its next sports car, the FT-86 II, at the Geneva show.

The concept will make its full debut in March, but for now all we have is this tantalising shot of the front lights and a few details.
The car has been stuck in development delay for some time now, with the original FT 86 concept shown off in March (see picture below) of last year, but this version is said to give a clearer indication of what the road car will finally look like.

The concept remains a joint project with Toyota's fellow Japanese manufacturer, Subaru, although a spokesman for Toyota said: "Each manufacturer will have its own version of the sports car, but there is a collaboration there."

The production version of the FT-86 II is due to appear in 2012 and is expected to be powered by Subaru's compact 2.0-litre Boxer engine.

No further details are available at the moment, although another teaser shot is expected before Toyota whips off the dust sheet on the first day of the show.
